This neighborhood bar is so cozy, it used to be called Snuggles Pub (no joke). But even after inheriting Irish-accented bartenders and a Guinness tap, it remains a popular homecoming hang for Gladstone Park thirtysomethings. The circular bar promotes camaraderie, 90's music is still alive in the jukebox, and we got so many Find the Third Boob photo-hunt games out of a single dollar that we wore out our right index finger.
